Gibson, David, Jr.
Gibson, David, Jr., Jefferson Co., Miss., Dec. 12, te. 97. He was born in (the now) Marion District, S. C., and remembered well the firing of cannon and ringing of bells when the declaration of July, 1776, was promulgated in the district ; also many incidents connected with the early struggle that followed, in his native state, in which his family, father, brothers, and uncles participated. After the fall of Charlestown, they removed to East T^pnessee, and spent a year. His descendants and connections are very numerous from South Carolina to California, and are, and have been, among our most useful citizens, comprising men of all honorable callings, preachers, teachers, learned professions, legislators, planters, and merchants. He was remarkable for the urbanity and dignity of his manners ; the perfect integrity and uprightness of his daily walk and conversation; for the preservation and active use of his phvsical strength and mental faculties to within a few days of his death; but more than all was he remarkable for being a living exemplification of that fiiith on which the hope of a happy immortality beyond the grave is founded.
